Hi there, Recently when I tried to load up a CD drive into my computer, the CD was not recognised on Windows 7. Also I noticed the drive could not be detected in the BIOS of the system. I also noticed that the drive recognised the disk for a moment, but it is never able to read or write to it. Any help is much appreciated!

Sometimes just reseating the connectors fixes this. Or, maybe you need a new drive. Try swapping parts until you figure it out.
